    I can't think of any SP's I've known that have strong political opinions or interest - I couldn't give 2 hoots about politics myself ... never been something that's caught my interest.

    Politics is full of J's (particularly IxxJs), as it's basically about pushing forward your strongly held views and opinions. That's not an ISFP's forte at all and being in that sort of environment would probably be very draining for them.

    I have strong opinions about politics, especially about war, foreign policy, and environmental issues. I find it draining, though, and need to take lots of mental health breaks (lots of walking and gardening and drawing and painting)... it really is frustrating because change happens slower than a glacier moves...

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    I wish I knew how to get a "green job". I'd probably be effective installing 100 ft windmills or something.

    For ISFPs? Yeah, don't go into politics. ISFPs have many great talents (and I personally find ISFP women adorable ), but policymaking is generally not one of them.

    I feel like it's full of ExxJ's. Ugh. Hate those guys. Jk. My sister's one of them, and they always think they have the answers for everyone.

    There would be a decent amount of ExxJ's too, but I think mostly IxxJ's because most polticians seem driven by their personal agendas - IxxJ's have dominant Ni (based on a insights/visions) or Si (based on past experience), which forms a viewpoint/agenda first and then pushes it forward with Fe (socially influential way) or Te (logically infleuntial way) vs EJ's who want to create organisation with their dominant Te (systematic organisation) or Fe (social organisation) first and use their Si (experience) or Ni (insight) to support and help create it.
